Remember Buffalo's 'Harvey & Corky'? Harvey Turned Out To Be Notorious

Back when I used to listen to Buffalo radio a lot more than I do now, there were always ads for concerts that were being promoted by "Harvey & Corky Productions." Maybe you remember those, too.

I'd long forgotten about that name until I discovered something that I never knew about that company. Turns out the "Harvey" in "Harvey and Corky" was none other than the infamous Harvey Weinstein, the now disgraced Hollywood mogul that brought about the #MeToo movement. 

He got his start in the Queen City, but who could ever have imagined in those days how one man - for all the wrong reasons - would change society as we know it.

Growing up in the GTA, I remember hearing about 'Harvey and Corky' productions all the time.  Who knew it was Weinstein!  Thanks for posting this.   It was really interesting.

Although I think the Buffalo-angle gets short shrift for obvious reasons, there's a PBS Frontline on Friday night that details the lengths Weinstein went to to try and silence his accusers.

WNED at 9pm if you're interested.
